I have a light/medium Asian skin color. I bought tone 2, thinking that was about right. Be careful because the picture they show you on the website is WAYY lighter than it actually is. The powder is pretty dark, and very orange. It totally did not match my skin tone.
The powder is also really cheap quality, because after a few uses you can see the bumpy surface. The compact is really cheap quality. My lid broke off and became all weird looking and opaue. The one thing the powder is able to do is absorb oil.
Light coverage, I bought the tone 3 and tone 2 since they were $1 each and I couldn't decide. I'm definitely a tone 2 (asian-y skin), but I like the tone 3 for a little bronzing color. I use a brush to apply the darker tone, so I don't glow orange on the face. It doesn't last all day, but it does get rid of the shine. I don't think it's making me break out... but it's hard to say, since i tend to use all powders/foundations more when I'm hiding something...
Well I thought it could be better, but didnt make my skin break out, but that was it, it was too sheer for me, looking for much more coverage. And the packaging it was way too small and no mirror!!!
This powder has a nice formula, it is very fine and goes on smoothly, it also has a nice scent. Coverage is buildable and it comes in several shades, shade 2 was a perfect match for me.
For a dollar, you canít beat this stuff. Great to keep in your purse for touch-ups. I recently started using my powder brush to loosen it up and apply it as a loose powder and the coverage is decent. As for the clarifying part, I donít know, I donít break out much so itís hard to say if it helps or not, but once again, itís only a dollar.
this is gross! i chose the medium shade and i looked orange. it also looks very cheap on my face. would not be applying this again.
not the best powder, but easily worth a dollar. good for a spare to keep in your desk or locker or something.
certainly worth a try for the price. if you like the more light coverage types, then this could be good for you.
2.) Looks natural
1.) Doesn't keep my oily skin matte for long, usually only an hour or so
2.) Doesn't cover enough
3.) Puff that comes with applies the product badly
Ehh. It's okay for a dollar. Or maybe for a younger girl.
I was always a little scared to use ELF's powder & foundation in the fear that it would make me break out. For a buck, I kind of expected that to happen. But one day I happened to get this free and was curious how it would work for me. Surprisingly though, it DID NOT make me break out, and it did actually look decent.! I like to keep it in my purse as an 'emergency' powder in case I forget or lose my other powder.
